    My question goes out to "the end is near" crowd on this board.

    What are you doing or have you done to prepare for your worst fears?

    The question is non-partisan and goes out to everyone regardless of political affiliation. This is not a debate about bush or obama or harry reid. This is about the personal choices you have made to protect yourself and your family and to preserve your lifestyle.

    Do you have a plan in place? Not a plan to arm yourself and shoot your fellow countrymen, but a real plan to protect yourself and your family.

    If you believe the government can protect you, are you working to support the leaders and legislation you support and see as needed to preserve your way of life?

    If you believe the government is the problem, what have you done to protect yourself and your family?

    Do you have a secure defendable location for your family? Is it stocked with food? Do you have a supply of water? How about power?

    Have you and your family learned the skills needed to survive on your own? What is your family able to do for themselves; grow or hunt food? Gather materials and fabricate clothing?

    Are you healthy? Have you taken care of your health?

    Do you have a plan?

    I see several on both sides claiming the end is near, as I am sure you all have seen.

    Have these people taken steps to protect themselves against those fears, or is it all hot air?

    Like I said, I see a lot of folks on this message board that seem convinced that times are gonna get real tough. So far the only thing I have observed those people saying that indicates any type of preparation is to arm themselves to shoot their fellow citizens.

    WellÂ…..then what?

    If civilization collapses, I'm not that eager to survive as either a serf/slave or prey to gangs of looters/cannibals.

    I'll put a corkscrew and some glasses in the wine cellar; that's about as much prep as I care to perform.

    You will be assimilated.

    Your finances will be controlled. Try living without the ability to buy or sell anything.

    A gun won't help you.

    I won't be alive to see it. Thank God. It will be a horrible life you will lead serving the one-world government. Everyone will have the same as everyone else. No self-determination.

    And you will have made it possible by voting for our elitist ruling class.
